Hygiene is a Requirement
Hygiene is a basic requirement in all modern food related establishments and manufacturing plants, with regard to legislation and customers. Productivity must be maximised and employees require a hygienic working environment. Requirements can be difficult to achieve but the best results are gained through good training and the right use of equipment and cleaning systems such as Salmon Hygiene Technology.
Good Hygiene Saves Money
Good hygiene influences both the working environment and public health. Poor hygiene can cost the company a lot of money in the form of a tarnished image/reputation and inedible or sub-standard products. Good hygiene can be ensured through the establishment of good routines, namely:
Basic knowledge of micro-organisms and how useful micro-organisms can be exploited and dangerous ones minimised.
Correct cleaning methods, specially designed for the food industry.
Using high-quality, ergonomically designed cleaning implements such as Salmon Hygiene Technology which are appropriate to the tasks.
Ensuring that the users are fully trained in the correct use of cleaning equipment and the risks associated with hygiene.
Why Salmon Hygiene Technology ensures a safer and more efficient cleaning process
Colour Coding greatly assists managers requiring interdepartmental or food type segregation who are implementing HACCP systems, and significantly reduces the chance of cross contamination. In “The Food Hygiene Handbook" (Highfield Publications, first published 1982), Richard Sprenger recommends “the use of different colours or shapes as a code to ensure equipment used for raw food is not used for high risk food". Salmon Hygiene Technology products are stocked in nine colours including blue, green, red, white, yellow, orange, purple and black with most products available with matching coloured backs. Black monofilaments of all diameters are stocked, and most of the brooms and brushes in this brochure can be filled with black material to special order, if they are not available as a standard product.
Salmon Hygiene Technology does not designate particular colours for specific areas or food types, because this is the responsibility of the cleaning managers. Some establishments require inter-departmental equipment segregation, but others require inter-food equipment segregation.
All our web based products are non resin filled brushes unless marked, if you have requirements for resin set brushes please email us for prices and delivery.
HACCP is a prevention-based system developed by the US Department of Agriculture to help food processors and food service companies eliminate food safety hazards by identifying Critical Control Points. The Points are defined as steps or procedures in the food-handling process, where controls can be applied to prevent or reduce hazards. HACCP is designed to minimise food safety risks by predicting where they are likely to occur and taking preventive action. EC Regulation 852/2004 states that “food business operators shall put in place, implement and maintain a permanent procedure or procedures based on the HACCP principles".
